The 2019 Nissan Altima & the 2019 Toyota Camry go head to head in MotorTrend’s March Mayhem event. In this round, they compare the two vehicles that are the newest in their market, the best selling, and the most well known to determine which is the best family car.
It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts
While these two vehicles may appear pretty similar from a distance, on the inside the differences are striking. While containing most of the same technology and infotainment–except for the standard AndroidAuto connectivity that separates the Altima from Camry–the materials used in the Camry are lackluster compared to the Altima’s finely accented zero gravity front seats. The Altima also offers more front leg room, standard remote engine start, and standard Intelligent Forward Collision Warning.
In the rear, the seats of the Camry open narrowly, making it difficult to fit in a car seat. The Altima rear doors open up to almost 90 degrees, making it extremely easy to install a car seat. The Altima also has the standard Rear Door Alert system, which gives audible and visual heads up in the instrument panel, reminding the driver to check the back seat.
The 2019 Nissan Altima is also more affordable than the Camry, with a base price starting at just over $30k for the Altima, while the Camry starts at close to $35k. With more space, power, and technology, the Altima keeps you feeling sporty, while keep your family safe.

Two great trucks. Why choose Nissan?
When buying a truck, dependability is at the top of the list for anyone in the market. And both the 2018 Nissan Titan and the 2018 Ford F-150 have that quality. The Ford F-150 is the best selling truck in America, and the 2017 Titan model was named TruckTrend’s “Pickup Truck of the Year.” So between these two great models, how do you decide?
2018 Nissan Titan
The 2018 Nissan Titan offers three standard features that used to be available options, including:
- Standard column shifter,
- tow/haul mode with Downhill Speed Control,
- and tailgate assist.
Combine these with a wide array of available upgrade features, compared to the F-150:
- Available hill descent control (King and Crew Cab only),
- 120-volt power outlet in cargo bed,
- front and rear sonar system,
- and Intelligent Around View® Monitor (King and Crew Cab only).
These are just the beginning of the list of features and perks offered with the 2018 Nissan Titan.
2018 Ford F-150
America’s best-selling truck has some great additions to this year’s model. Update exterior styling, new interior color options, and an available audio system give fresh style to this trustworthy truck. In addition, it has made the rear-view camera a standard feature on all Ford models. Available options include:
- 4G LTE modem for a WiFi hot spot,
- Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go functionality,
- and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
Seems like a neck-and-neck race for these two trucks,
so come and see us at Newton Nissan (and Newton Ford South!) to test drive one for yourself!
Two great cars. How do you decide?
When it comes to buying a new car, no one wants to be uninformed about what’s out there. And here at Newton Nissan, we do not want to ever pressure you into making a decision. So here are two great options out there for your next sedan. Keep reading to understand the key similarities and differences between them, so that you can make a well-informed decision!
2018 Nissan Altima
This new model year for the Nissan Altima brings with it many new standard features, including:
- Standard hands-free text messaging assistant,
- Standard Advanced Drive-Assist® Display,
- and Standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).
These features combine to keep the driver alert and aware at all times, even when needing to stay connected on-the-go. In addition, also available is the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which warns the driver to a potential rear-end accident. It monitors the vehicle directly two cars ahead, and alerts the driver with both visual and audio warnings. Though the Malibu also offers a similar system, it can only monitor the car directly in front.
2018 Chevy Malibu
The Malibu for this year is not lacking in features itself, either. One noticeable difference in the increase in the size of the fuel tank–up from 13.0 gallons to 15.8 gallons on models with the 1.5 liter engine. The Altima, however, does make even that increase seem small,by offering a 18.0 gallon tank! An additional standard feature now on all Malibu models is the rear-view camera, which makes backing up a breeze. Also available are many different trim levels, which vary in both packages and pricing.
Standards Sweeten the Deal
When you’re looking for a car, of course you want good features. Nissan makes that easy by making so many great features standard–at no extra cost to you–ranging from connectivity to safety. But you also want an affordable price. Nissan again offers a lower starting price than the Chevy. The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong either way. Check the choices out for yourself, and we hope to see you soon!
Two great cars. Two reputable manufacturers. How do you decide?
Here at Newton Nissan, we don’t want you to only take our word for it when it comes to buying a car. We want you to make an informed decision. So we’ve put two of the top sedans available on the market head-to-head: Nissan’s 2017 Altima Sedan vs Toyota’s 2017 Camry to help you decide.
2017 Toyota Camry
Toyota’s Camry this year offers gasoline-powered models in a 4-cylinder or V6 engine, as well as a hybrid model. The gasoline models feature a 6-speed automatic transmission, but the hybrid model offers Toyota’s Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
On the interior, the XLE and XSE models newly feature the Entune™ Audio Plus system with navigation. Other select models are equipped with a Qi Wireless Smartphone Charging system for certain phones.
2017 Nissan Altima Sedan
Nissan’s version of Toyota’s CVT, Xtronic CVT® comes standard on the 2017 Altima Sedan, giving every model smooth acceleration and quiet performance. It also has a better fuel efficiency than the Camry, with a larger fuel tank and an average of 30 mpg with a 4-cylinder engine; Camry’s estimates for the Camry’s 4-cylinder is 27 mpg. Also standard on the 2017 Altima is Push Button Ignition.
In the driver’s seat, the Altima has the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display, providing easy recognition of vehicle information and warnings. For added comfort, a heating steering wheel is available on select models. This feature is not offered on any of the Camry models.
A Standard Upgrade
The 2017 Nissan Altima considers standard what competitors count as luxury upgrades. It is the clear choice for someone looking at the 2017 Nissan Altima versus 2017 Toyota Camry this year, because of these standard luxuries that Nissan offers on the Altima.
